Comics Should be Good
Marvel would just let Chris Claremont write what he wants to write!
I would totally read a book about a dinosaur with robotic arms.
Provided Claremont had nothing to do with it.
Also: “Haukka” is Finnish for “hawk.” So…what the hell? Shouldn’t they be called “Igua’na” or some shit?
Oh wait, wrong comic.
What in the Jesus Mercy Good God Damn is going on in that picture?
Marvel would just let Warren Ellis write what he wants to write!
Has Grant Morrison ever written for Marvel?
Is that a joke, Tim?
Or do you have a bunch of good X-Men comics to look forward to?
How in G0d’s name did I forget New X-men??!?!?!?!?
I utterly adored the Magneto/Xorn/Drugs/Riots/Evil twin/Sentinels thing!!!
Frank Quitely, etc… Sheesh… talk about a MAJOR MENTAL BLOCK…
I am now going to have to dig them out, re-read them and slap myself…
Boy do I need a holiday…
Ermm…. He didn’t actually write anything else for Marvel though did he??
My brain has gone that badly has it?
Also the excellent Marvel Boy and the very good Fantastic Four 1234
Plus, from awhile ago, he co-wrote Skrull Kill Krew with Mark Millar.
Ah-Ha! Something new for the Morissonian in me…
I will go on a hunt for those…
Was this before his New X-men run or do I really deserve a slap with a cold fish?? If it was anytime in the nineties, I have various excuses…
Sorry, back on topic… I particularly enjoyed the Hauk’ka arc… Probably nostalgic. Just loved seeing Alan Davis drawing Claremont’s Twisted X-MenÂ®… Reminded me of Excalibur (volume one)… Great Fun!!
Morrison also wrote a short NIck Fury story for Marvel Knights Double Shot #2
Oh right, jjc, good call!
I didn’t think of that because I don’t believe it was ever collected in trade, but yeah, he definitely did that short story. It was good, too.
Skrull Kill Krew was the 90s, Tim, but the other two projects were concurrent with New X-Men.
Marvel Boy was with JG Jones and Fantastic Four 1234 was with Jae Lee.
Does Marvel UK count? Because Zoids.
” Also: â€œHaukkaâ€ is Finnish for â€œhawk.â€ Soâ€¦what the hell? Shouldnâ€™t they be called â€œIguaâ€™naâ€ or some shit? ”
Depends, Ian. Do you believe the old theory that Dinosaurs were lizards, or the more modern theory that they were an offshoot that would later evolve into what we know as birds?
Not that I like the Hauk’ka, since they’re one of the most annoying examples of characters for whom Claremont’s affection does not translate to the audience. But I do want to clear up misconceptions about the nature of dinosaurs
What, what is this picture from??
I need to know!
Gotta love GM’s run on Zoids. Sadly neglected by the toy nostalgia boom.
As for The Uncanny Hauk’ka – I’d shell out for that. The pic is from Uncanny X-Men from the brief Claremont/Davis run a couple of years ago.
I just bought that Double Shot issue out of a dollar bin the other day. It was surrounded by old issues of Youngblood and Brigade. It seemed weirdly out of place.
Actually, I think Claremont’s free reign title would more likely be The Invincible Psylocke and Her Amazing Mind-Controlled Friends (now with 75% more mind control!).
OT (mostly). So the other day I was thinking about Dinobots. If you’re already a kickass, metal dinosaur, why do you need to transform into a humanoid robot? It boggles the mind.
One word, Da Fug: thumbs.
I would think Clairmont’s dream comic would star Jean Grey, Psylocke, and Storm, all in BD/SM themed adventures. And I would *totally* buy it.
God, please don’t remind me of that crap. On Ice might just be the worst X-Men arc ever. Yes, even worse than She Lies With Angels.
Worse than Draco!?
“I would think Clairmontâ€™s dream comic would star Jean Grey, Psylocke, and Storm, all in BD/SM themed adventures. And I would *totally* buy it.”
why does everyone hate me???!!!
HA! okay seriously yeah i would buy that Jean, Betsy, and Ororo book. it would be awesome. isn’t that sort of what his impending / upcoming / yet-to-be-released-in-the-US European x-women book is about?
So what Claremont really wants to write…
… is apparently Dino Riders?
Claremont would have Storm, Jean, and Psylocke in BDSM adventures that end with Kitty Pryde (in sensible clothing) solving everyone’s problems with her ninja and computer skills.
You know, I honestly don’t think The Draco was that bad. It isn’t a great story, and it’s fallout was handled poorly, but I like the basic concept. She Lies With Angels and On Ice were absolutely horrendous in every way, though. But She Lies With Angels introduced Icarus, and wasn’t quite as retarded overall as On Ice.
I would think Clairmontâ€™s dream comic would star Jean Grey, Psylocke, and Storm, all in BD/SM themed adventures. And I would *totally* buy it.
You do know that Chris Claremont has written an X-Men story featuring the female team members that is to be drawn by European erotica comic book artist Milo Manara, right? So you might just be getting your wish sooner than you think
“Marvel would just let Chris Claremont write what he wants to write!”
Wasn’t that the whole point of giving him the Exiles book in the first place?
“Yes, even worse than She Lies With Angels.”
No, nothing was worse…well, The Draco maybe. I may be a bit biased, as Alan Davis is prob my second favorite artist…so try to ignore the dialogue and focus on the pretty pictures lol
